Project: Lucas Quality Meats Bronte, Sydney Installer: United Installation & Repairs Liner: Glasbord PSI Smooth Application: Wall and ceiling liner Lucas Quality Meats supplies pork, hams and bacons products to local Area Health Services, hospitals, large restaurants, Nursing Homes and the like. For over 30 years their Cool Room walls and ceiling panels have undergone the rigours of bacon curing/salting/smoking, pallet damage and over time to stay commercially viable, and regulated, a number of wall surface treatments have been applied to bring their facility up to food regulations of the day. About two years ago a major preventative maintenance program was undertaken, applying a reputable company’s wall cladding system. Unfortunately the wall and ceiling cladding is now bowing and drooping (as shown in the first two photos above), becoming unsightly and bringing the company under the microscope of food inspection authorities. United Installation & Repair is in the process of removing the old cladding system, cleaning up the old worn surfaces, treating rust areas, and cutting and manipulating the sheets of Crane Glasbord around ceiling and wall protuberances into position and securing them to the walls and ceilings with an odourless high grab adhesive. The results so far have transformed an old looking facility into one that is brighter, sanitary, stain resistant, high impact and abrasion resistance and most importantly a safer environment to work in. Crane Glasbord is a fibreglass wall and ceiling internal cladding system, available in sheets up to 3.05 meter by 1.22m in nominal thicknesses or 1.9mm or 2.3mm. At point of manufacture the fibreglass/ polyester resin/ microbiological agents and varying amounts of fire retardants are cast against either a smooth or embossed tough thin plastic film called SurfaSeal. The Crane Glasbord then becomes a surface that will not harbor mould, mildew or bacteria, becomes highly impact and scratch resistant, and chemically resistant. Crane Glasbord is HACCP certified, meets AS 4674, AQIS Export Meat Certified for food processing facilities (capable of repeated 82C water cleans), and has been tested to Building Code of Australia’s fire test requirements of AS 3837, attaining Class 1 and Class 3 certification.

On installing Glasbord, the first thing noticed was just how quickly the cool rooms were being transformed. Plus there was no unpleasant Polyester resin odour normally attributed with fibreglass. By using Sika’s odourless adhesive meant that Doyles on the Beach Restaurant could resume their operations quickly, whilst the high grab strength, permanently flexible adhesive continues to strengthen.
